Brilliant location! Rooms are no more or less than you need. Friendly, helpful staff. We arrived late at night and fell into bed expecting the typical concrete slab and "as good as empty" pillow. I was thrilled to find a very comfortable bed and pillow in a neat and quiet room. I would definitely stay here again.

We wanted to be close to the Queen Street Mall & this one was great - only 2 blocks away! The staff were helpful. They gave us a local map and held our bags after check-out so we could go and shop some more. Breakfast for one was included in our room rate, so we added a second person for... More

If you want a good basic place to lay your head Hotel G W is for you! Very close to Brisbane CBD and all the action. Rooms a bit on the small side but suitable for solo travellers. Beds comfortable , clean and all necessities provided. Great rates and breakfast provided if required for small extra charge. Great people watching... More

The hotel has a good central location but the rooms are so tiny that the luggages don't have enough space. The aircon only works on or off it does not regard the temperature set and is very loud (the init is fully inside the room). The breakfast is ridiculous, limited selection and for ONLY ONE PERSON per room, the others... More

Without doubt the best VALUE & LOCATION, plus. free WIFI until end January, they are running a trial. Why is it that only 3* hotels offer free wifi, whether it be Sullivan' in Perth or HGW in Brisbane ?? Currently many rooms are being renovated, but, for $89 ours was not. OK, quite compact on a Formula 1 basis, BUT,... More

The Hotel George Williams is well-situated in the busiest part of Brisbane. The Queens Mall is a short walk away, and you can take a half-hour walk to the bridge that crosses the Brisbane River and enjoy the scenic shoreline city beach or board a ferry to cruise the river. Our room balcony was completely private, giving a view of... More

Location, service and room was very good. The down part was the included breakfast; coffee looked like tea an tasted like...nothing and the breakfast itself was meagre. It is not worth paying the extra to include breakfast. Other than that a good hotel that I would gladly recommend!
